the roles that were played in identifying the courier and there are critics. >> yes. >> senator john mccain is one. he says that he wants to take a closer look at the interrogations policies under the bush administration. including john brennan's involvement in them. >> guest: i applaud him. he has been saying forever for so long as to why this is important. and he is right, in my view. i think we should look at interrogation policies and drone policies and john brennan before this nomination. he asked to talk about the legal framework around the policy. drones are tool and a lot of our foreign policy needs to be defense. and one of the things i hope you will do is take a fresh look at the paramilitary part of the mission that should be with the pentagon, which has an exception of intelligence. the rest should be the more traditional aspects. and he understands that because he was there for 25 years. i'm talking about him as the principal part of the military function of the cia and having a huge role. it follows very careful, legal steps. i disagree with portions of it, but what i am sayin

something else coming up. he really ticked off a lot of his fellow republicans. john mccain who once said he would make a great secretary of state now thinks he's not such a great idea. come on. this is pure politics. it is ridiculous. but it's the world that we now live in. >> john: trisha, why do republicans hate one of their own this much? because he was right about the iraq war? >> the question -- there used to be an idea about the party line but i had no idea that this line was basically something that you could choke yourself on immediately if you strayed a quarter inch from it. i think a lot of it is about what has taken hold among the prominent members of the republican party going against democrats, in particular, against obama, is their primary job. of course, that's not true. and that's what happens when -- this is the kind of outcome you get when that's the political drive. people should be punished for that kind of political partisanship because it hurts everyone involved. i'm actually -- i think if he's going to go outside of the sort of liberal core of his philosophy, he shoul

was in 2011. hagel, though, still has his own fight on his hands. yet senator john mccain acknowledged that his skepticism about the nomination of his long time friend and ally has its roots, and why they've split since, has its roots in the fact that hagel split with mccain on the iraq surge. >> we both knew that we were losing the war in iraq. lindsey graham and i and joe lieberman and others said we need a surge. and the president somewhat reluctantly adopted the surge and it succeeded. senator hagel obviously said it couldn't. and he called it the biggest blunder since the vietnam war. that is a really gross misconception of america's role there and in the world. >> south carolina senator lindsey graham said he could put a hold on cia nominee john brennan's nomination until the white house addresses questions about benghazi again. quote -- i do not believe we should confirm anyone as director of the cia until our questions are answered, like who changed ambassador susan rice's talking points and deleted the references to al qaeda. my support for a delaying confirmation is not direc

's very controversial with republicans. >> who does john mccain like today besides lindsey? anybody else? >> i don't think so. >> he doesn't like chuck hagel. >> let me disagree with something. this is not a change in policy. the president came in saying he would end the iraq war and the afghan war. he would get rid of the iraq war and take the afghanistan war and slow it down, basically downsize it. that's what he's been doing for the last four years despite the neocons screaming about it all the way. chuck haig segel is a continuatn that. when he had to, he stared down petraeus. [ overlapping speakers ] >> you guys have john boldin after saying this is clinton with somehow faking her concussion. >> i didn't say that. the president can have who he wants. i like chuck hagel. if he gets it, i'm fine with it. >> suppose your guy won the race the guy you thought would win. and he put boldin in, the strange mustache guy. would they have put him in there? >> i don't think romney would have put bolton in. >> let's talk about the fiscal cliff. that's behind us. that turkey's behind us. >> we go

to the climate challenge for many years was senator john mccain. the nominee of the republican party was the premiere architect of responding to climate change. how far things have changed in the past four years where we ended up in the primaries of -- the republican primaries of 2012 and we found that all of them, with the one exception of jon huntsman, were calling into question the basic reality of the problem itself. were basically saying in some cases saying that it was a hoax, okay. this is a remarkable turn for the party itself. and you know -- and what we're seeing of course right now is that in the aftermath of the loss of 2012 -- republicans are beginning to look inward and they're trying to say, "where have we gone wrong? where are our new opportunities to engage the public?" immigration is one of those issues that they're beginning to say, "maybe it's time to change our position." climate change could be another of those. because it's one of the ways that they can appeal back to the middle. our own work, we found that independents are much more like democrats on their bel

and all these cabinets. >> they would call john mccain maverick because he would do whatever he thought. lindsey graham is trying to be maverick jr. >> jennifer: he has good ratings in south carolina. >> he has good ratings right now, but we don't know which tea party candidate is going to run against him. jim dement from south carolina who just left, he was a true tea party right wing nut. a lot of south carolinaens especially republicans, don't think lindsey graham is a right wing nut too. >> jennifer: he has been prior to these past couple of years he has been a voice a reasonable, rational voice. >> sometimes he has sometimes he hasn't. >> jennifer: when he looks at climate change. >> yes. >> jennifer: he seemed to be reasonable. but all of a sudden he has taken this far tact to the right. >> he has a primary in a year and a half. >> jennifer: his numbers are pretty good. >> richard lugar's numbers were pretty good. >> jennifer: quickly your take on the virginia governor race poll out. former dnc terry mcauliffe is republicanning against ken cuccineu. >> the macversus the cuc. i wen
